Abstract: 

Tugh is one of the Shi’i religious “‘Alāmat”s which is to be studied from ritual, religious, anthropological, and artistic viewpoints. In particular, the epigraphs of the Tughs contain the Qur’anic suras and verses, the Most Beautiful Names of Allah, the names of the Fourteen Impeccables, the Great Blessings, and other prayers. These inscriptions indicate the general orientations or the Tughs that are mainly based on recourses, glorification and remembrance of Allah, remembering the Impeccables, seeking help, and Shi’i ideals and slogans. These Tughs are mainly souvenirs of the late Safavid to the early Qajar eras.
